  1. Trash Treasure...thanks very much for the reply...doesn't sound like a machine I can really use, as I already have a couple of smallish domestic machines for light work. Again, thank you for the quick response!
  2. Hey All, I'm hoping someone knows something about Singer BZ 15-8 machines...I know someone that has one, willing to give it to me gratis, but I have no idea what this machine is capable of. I'll probably need to put some work into it, and I don't need to get deep in the weeds on this if I can't use it for leather projects. Any insight will be appreciated...Thanks in advance! Mike
  3. AtomicLeathers, I made a template for repeatability...but I need to massage the template a bit...I could send you the drawings soon as I dig them up...
  4. Fine work there...I'm sure he'll love it!
  5. Cool masks...I'm just finishing up one of my own, but not nearly as nice as these. I don't have the chops for painting. Thanks for sharing!
  6. Thanks all for looking... JHLeatherwood, as a means of motivating myself to finish a new bag, I tossed the old one...thank you for the kind words.
  7. Back around Fall of 2003, I took on my first leatherworking project, a fork bag for my cruiser. I thought it would be less expensive, and making a bag for myself seemed like something I would enjoy. That bag ended up costing me thousands, but I do enjoy trying to make leather stuff...That original bag should have been retired a while ago, but I just got around to it, finished up a new fork bag today. There's plenty I did wrong, and my skills haven't come as far as I'd like over the years, but I learned a lot on this one. I think I'll try again soon, but I have some gifts to finish first.
  8. Ditto on what the other folks have already said...I could learn a lot from you...Nice work, me likee...
  9. Beautiful, thank you for sharing.
  10. fredk, thanks for the reply, good idea on the rubber washers...that's all the encouragement I need...Thanks again!
  11. Just wondering what folks think about mounting a small, lightweight motorcycle bag using bolts through grommets...I have an idea for a custom bag for my bike, and due to the odd planes of the mounting surface, I was thinking this might work. Just a small bag for paperwork, phone, wallet...any thoughts on how well grommets might work for mounting directly to existing frame points?
  12. Very nice work! You must have a great deal of patience.
